At Deakin Bio, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of sustainability in the construction industry. We recently conducted a comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on our innovative Cyalith tiles, and the results are remarkable. Working with an independent LCA consultancy, we compared the environmental impact of our tiles against conventional ceramic tiles and an established eco-friendly brand. The findings validate our efforts to create a truly sustainable solution for the built environment.
Carbon Footprint: Redefining Sustainability
The LCA revealed that our Cyalith tiles achieved an impressive 94.4% reduction in carbon footprint when compared to ordinary ceramic tiles (see below). This significant reduction is a testament to our commitment to combating climate change. In comparison, the established eco-friendly brand only showed a 56.5% improvement over conventional ceramic tiles. By opting for Cyalith, architects, builders, and homeowners can make a substantial positive impact on the environment without compromising on aesthetics or performance.
Air Pollution: A Breath of Fresh Air
Our production process stands out for its exceptional environmental performance. Unlike traditional ceramic tile manufacturing, which involves burning substantial amounts of fossil fuels, our Cyalith tiles are manufactured without such emissions. The LCA demonstrated that our process generates a staggering 99.0% less air pollution in the form of Fine Particulate Matter Formation (PMFP) compared to conventional ceramic tiles. This reduction enhances air quality and contributes to a healthier living environment for all.
Water Pollution: Protecting Aquatic Ecosystems
Preserving our precious water resources is of paramount importance. The LCA findings highlighted that the Freshwater Eutrophication Potential (FETP) of our Cyalith tiles was 97.5% lower than that of ordinary ceramic tiles. In other words, the manufacture of our tiles causes far less damage to aquatic ecosystems compared to conventional tiles. By choosing Cyalith tiles, our customers actively contribute to the preservation of vital water bodies, ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.
The independent Life Cycle Assessment unequivocally confirms the superior environmental performance of our Cyalith tiles. With an outstanding 94.4% improvement in carbon footprint, 99.0% reduction in air pollution, and 97.5% lower water pollution potential, Cyalith tiles lead the way in sustainable construction materials.
By providing sustainable solutions that significantly reduce environmental impact, we are proud to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. Check out our online store for a Cyalith sample pack, or the specification sheet to see if they meet your requirements.
